Marko: If we win at Silverstone too, things are looking good for us

Helmut Marko is curious about the course of the British Grand Prix. Max Verstappen is in good shape and gets the chance to increase his leading position in the world championship. There will also be a sprint race, of which Marko himself doesn't seem to be sure whether it is a positive thing or not.

In any case, the bookmakers rate Verstappen's chances by far the highest at Silverstone. "Hopefully they will be right. Max drove two flawless races in Spielberg, even under pressure, and showed that he is ready for the title," the Red Bull Racing advisor replied.

Marko takes himself by surprise

Marko has been somewhat critical of Formula 1's new format for testing in Britain this weekend. The 78-year old from Graz said that one small mistake can ruin your whole weekend. At ÖSTERREICH Marko is a bit more positive."I will let myself be surprised for once. For the organizers and for the spectators it's definitely a win. We have qualifying on Friday, the sprint on Saturday and the regular GP on Sunday. That makes everything different, so it will be a very different race now."

There are 29 points to be earned this coming weekend. The sprint race on Saturday gives the winner three points. It's a great opportunity to extend the lead over title rival Lewis Hamilton. "That's true. We're only in the tenth weekend now. But it's true, if we also win at Silverstone, then things are indeed looking good for us," Marko concluded.
